Day 2

  • 9:30-10:30 Roundtable 7
  • 10:30-10:45 Coffee break
  • 10:45-12:45 Working groups I. The idea here is that from the roundtables and ensuing discussions, we would form groups to work on a specific project or goal, and during this time do some planning, programming, etc.
  • 12:45-13:45 Lunch
  • 13:45-15:00 Working groups II
  • 15:00-15:15 Coffee break
  • 15:15-17:00 Working groups present results, identify future goals, etc.


The idea of a roundtable is to get a set of 3-6 people working a lot in this area to identify the issues, spark a discussion and debate to identify the issues, and get the conversation flowing. From these will arise points to work on in Day 2. Everyone is assigned somewhere.

Chairs: I will try to set an example for what it means to be a "Chair" in session 1. Chairs are also participants in the roundtable, but should think of some questions to get the discussion going. I (Ken) will try to set an example in RT 1.
